Donald Trump Makes Yet Another Excuse For His Bad Performance

Donald Trump Makes yet Another Excuse for His Bad Performance

For someone who doesn’t want to “push conspiracy theories, ” Donald Trump does a pretty good job of it when he claims that he had a bad microphone. For someone who acts so macho, if Donald Trump were a real man, he would just admit that he went into the debate poorly prepared. Of course, it’s very hard to prepare for a debate when you have absolutely nothing to work with, like a defensible position.

This morning, on “Fox & Friends,” Donald Trump kept complaining that his microphone is bad, and wondered if it was intentionally set up that way. Trump also complained that the microphone was picking up his incessant sniffling. Sounds like a conspiracy theory to me!

It takes a real man to “own their shit,” and obviously Donald Trump isn’t ready to do that yet if he ever will be. Instead of blaming his bad performance in last night’s debate with Hillary Clinton on a “bad microphone,” people will respect him more if he just admitted that he was ill prepared to go into the debate. He should also a promise his “followers” that he would do a better job of preparing for the next debate. Instead, he prefers just to make some wimpy excuse. This should prove to everyone concerned that Donald Trump is nothing more than just another snake oil salesman, trying to get into their pockets.

Like I said before, one of Donald Trump’s major problems could be that his position on everything is complete bullshit that is indefensible.

Will Gun Control Make It Into The Debate?

Will Gun Control Make It Into The Debate?

gun controlIt will be interesting to see whether or not the subject of gun control will make it into tonight’s debate.  I guess we shall see because the debate is only about an hour away.  I hope the subject of gun control is discussed, especially since there were two mass shootings over the weekend.

Gun control legislation, or lack thereof, deserves to be given some coverage to both candidates, especially since gun violence in the United States seems to be getting worse.  Hardly a day goes by when we don’t hear about gun violence occurring somewhere.  Most of this violence could be prevented if our legislators would always take a united stand and enact some badly needed firearms legislation.

Hillary Clinton has already spoken out for gun control legislation because she recognizes the problem of gun violence that is plaguing our country.  The entire Democratic Party seems to have taken a stance on gun control legislation.  However, they don’t appear to have done very much about proposing some sensible gun control legislation.  So far, little has happened other than politicians paying lip service to the entire subject of gun control.  It seems that the topic only comes up after some tragedy like happened over the weekend.

On the other hand, Donald Trump has come out against gun control legislation of any type.  He is acting like a typical Republican because he has been bought off by the National Rifle Association (NRA).  This is the only area where Donald Trump is sticking to the Republican Party line of opposition to gun control legislation.

One question I would like to ask both parties is, how many people have to die before they get their asses in gear and recognize that we cannot allow gun violence to run rampant any longer?

Donald Trump Supporters Scare Me More Than He Does

Donald Trump Supporters Scare Me More Than He Does

If you didn’t think that Donald Trump was scary enough on his own, his supporters are more frightening than he is.  After reading this article in Mother Jones, I realize that Hillary Clinton was correct for describing them as “deplorable.” Most of the Trump supporters are deplorable, especially those who made it into this article.

Hillary Clinton made a mistake by attempting to walk back her statement.  I would have respected her more if she would have stuck by her original statement, perhaps with a small qualification, perhaps to distinguish those few Donald Trump supporters who are terribly misguided, disaffected, or merely angry at the system.

In many ways, it is true, especially when applied to the collection of lowlife and racist assholes listed in this article.  Most of these groups who identify themselves as Donald Trump supporters include everything from the KKK, The Aryan Nation, and other groups so have come to identify themselves as “white nationalists,” which has become a code word for a white supremacist.  In fact, many of these groups and people are on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) watchlist for hate groups.  Most of these groups and people should be considered as no less that domestic terrorists.  These groups and people have used violence in the past and are very likely to use it again.  Hopefully, the FBI are also watching them closely.

These people like to hide their identity much in the same way a Klansman hides under a white robe and hood.  What a bunch of cowards, these Donald Trump supporters are!  Donald Trump should be ashamed that his ugly rhetoric attracts people such as these.  But as we all know, Donald Trump is shameless and is space proud of it.

Donald Trump’s candidacy for POTUS has brought a lot of these secret racist hate groups out of the shadows even though they are a fringe element that is in the minority. He has given them a voice and has validated their ugly mentality because Donald Trump has given voice to the same feelings they have. Much of his rhetoric is the same as what they have expressed for years.

Adding to Donald Trump’s lack of credibility is that he has not distanced himself from these people. He is just as much of a loser as his followers. Hopefully, after he is defeated, they will go back into the shadows and disappear just like he should.

The Main Reason We Should Be Scared of Donald Trump As POTUS

The Main Reason We Should Be Scared of Donald Trump As POTUS

Even though this commercial spot was posted on television by a PAC that supports Hillary Clinton, and not her real campaign, should not cause us to miss the message behind this video. It accentuates just why we should all be scared to death of the prospects of Donald Trump possibly becoming POTUS.

This video, taken from various clips of him, should convince everyone that Donald Trump is far too dangerous to be allowed anywhere near nuclear weapons, or the power to use them against anyone he sees as a potential “enemy.”

There is something very wrong with a person saying, “I love war” in a public interview with Donald Trump has done. Maybe if he had ever had a horror of experiencing the hell that war causes, Donald Trump would not be so cavalier with his attitude about it. Of course, Donald Trump has never had to go through the horrendous experience that war is because his wealthy father was able to use his money and influence to make sure that his son never had to experience it.

Anyone who says, “I love war” is nothing less than deranged. I’m starting to have very real questions about the sanity of Donald Trump. I’m starting to believe that he has more than a few screws loose if he believes own words.

Is saying these words, Donald Trump makes the think about a quote from the great socialist leader of this country, Eugene Debs, who is quoted as saying, “The master class always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles.”

Media Bias in Reporting “Pay to Play” Against Trump Foundation

A question I have is whether or not the media is biased in reporting the “pay to play” tactic being used by Donald Trump.

Media Bias in Reporting “Pay to Play” Against Trump Foundation

 

Pay to playA question I have is whether or not the media is showing bias in reporting the “pay to play” tactic being used by Donald Trump. In my opinion, the answer to this question is a definite yes, the media is showing bias in their reporting of how Donald Trump is using the “pay to play” tactic in his campaign. Even though the charges leveled against the Clinton campaign about her campaign’s alleged use of the pay to play tactic have been discounted as false, Donald Trump persists in using these claims against his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

This latest case of the hypocrisy of the Trump campaign centers around the fact that Donald Trump gave Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi a relatively large political contribution in her reelection campaign against the Democratic Party contender. Trump is seen telling this story in a television interview, given on his private airline the other day.

Despite the blatancy of Trump’s admission, only the more progressive news outlets have seen fit to give this story any attention and coverage. When a candidate freely admits that he gave a large political contribution to the campaign of a political candidate, in this case, Pam Bondi, the newsworthiness of this story is very clear.

In return for his donation, Pam Bondi dropped her investigation of Trump University, the well-known scam that Donald Trump has mostly gotten away with, at least so far. How the so-called “mainstream media” has overlooked this story is way beyond me. It is further proof that the “mainstream media” is in collusion with a political candidate to alter the results of an election by their neglect to fairly report the use of the pay to play tactic by Trump.

Even though I’m sure that the mainstream media would take an exception to my claims of collusion when they fail to report a major story like this, how is anyone supposed to believe otherwise?

The Trump Foundation: The Real Pay to Play

Whenever the news sees fit to report it, Donald Trump has leveled accusation against the Clinton Foundation of using the so-called “pay to play” tactic to raise campaign funds the campaign of Hillary Clinton; something which is illegal.

The Trump Foundation: The Real Pay to Play

pay to playWhenever the news sees fit to report it, Donald Trump has leveled the accusation against the Clinton Foundation of using the illegal tactic “pay to play” to raise campaign funds. These allegations have been proven to be false. Despite this, Donald Trump keeps using it against Hillary Clinton as a campaign weapon.

In most circles, the pay to play practice is considered to be unethical and unfair practice. In most cases, it is deemed to be nothing less than outright bribery. Since American politics seems to have little to do with ethics, the pay to pay practice goes on. In fact, some candidates have perfected it to a fine art. In the business world of Donald Trump, it has become “standard operating procedure”.

For those who may not know, the pay to play practice is one where a person, in this case, a candidate, gives a contribution to a person or some organization must particular person feels close to, In return, the contributor receives access to this particular person or candidate. In some cases, that particular candidate or political figure will do some favor for the donor.

In this particular case, the pay to play accusation is against the Trump Foundation, which is nothing more than a front that Donald Trump uses to shield himself. This time, he is trying to shield himself from the investigation into Trump University, by now a well-known scam concocted by Donald Trump.

Recently, in an interview on TV, Donald Trump admits that he gave a political contribution to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. After Pam Bondi accepted this donation, she “conveniently” withdrew the state of Florida from the investigation into Trump University. Many states have chosen to go forward with their investigations into this alleged scam. To cut to the chase, Pam Bondi accepted a bribe from Donald Trump to stop the state of Florida from investigating Trump University.

Donald Trump still insists on accusing the Clinton foundation of accepting contributions for the campaign of Hillary Clinton, even she vehemently denies them.

Once again, Donald Trump shows himself to be the greatest hypocrite. He admitted to making a large contribution to Pam Bondi and her campaign but yet he doesn’t consider himself to be guilty of using the same pay to play practice. That goes way beyond the pot calling the kettle black; something which Trump has perfected to a fine art.

Victory for People With Disabilities in Los Angeles

Victory for People with Disabilities in Los Angeles

People with disabilitiesPeople with disabilities in the city of Los Angeles have won a significant victory with this latest ruling from the Courts. Hopefully, people with disabilities who need accessible housing will be able to have access to it finally. Also hopefully, these housing units will be accessible. By using the term “truly accessible, housing units” I mean that these homes will be fully equipped to handle whatever disability that a particular person has. Many homes are ruled to be accessible, even if they truly are not. There have been any times when the “powers that be”, (mostly able-bodied people) really don’t have a clear understanding of what the word accessibility even means. How many times have we people with disabilities see the situation where some architect or builder thought that something was accessible just because they stuck a blue symbol of access on it?

One of the biggest barriers faced by people with disabilities is finding accessible housing. For many disabled, they are trapped living in inadequate housing that doesn’t serve their needs. They are then put in the unenviable position where they cannot have the true enjoyment of life, as any other person expects to, or has the right to. Many times, housing that is termed as being accessible isn’t, and forces a person to live with the added burden of having to make do in a situation that most people would not tolerate.

In fact, there are nearly 2 million people with disabilities people trapped in nursing homes just because they cannot find accessible housing. Even though I applaud this decision, and think it’s wonderful, I am most other advocates for people with disabilities will not be satisfied as long as there are so many of our brothers and sisters trapped in human warehouses.

Colin Kaepernick Should Be Applauded, Not Condemned

The San Francisco quarterback has been attacked for refusing to stand for the Star Spangled Banner—and for daring to criticize the system in which he thrived.

Source: Colin Kaepernick Is No Hypocrite

Colin Kaepernick Should Be Applauded, Not Condemned

I wholeheartedly agree with the point that 49er quarterback, Colin Kaepernick was trying to make with his protest by not standing up for the national anthem. I also agree with the way he protested.

Despite what many people may say or think, I think what Colin Kaepernick not only took a lot of courage but highlighted a very valid fact that racism still exists in the United States. I would like to think that I would do the same thing if I were in his position.

Colin Kaepernick was trying to make the very same point that the two brave athletes who defiantly stood, fists in the air, at the 1968 Summer Olympics, in Mexico City. Those two brave athletes were widely condemned, even though the point they were trying to make was very valid, especially in the sixties when the civil rights movement was still in its heyday.

The american sprinters Tommie Smith,John Carlos and Peter Norman during the award ceremony of the 200 m race at the Mexican Olympic games. During the awards ceremony, Smith and Carlos protested against racial discrimination: they went barefoot on the podium and listened to their anthem bowing their heads and raising a fist with a black glove. Mexico City, Mexico, 1968 Mexico city, Mexico, 1968

Unfortunately, much of what Tommie Jones and John Carlos, the two athletes at the 1968 Summer Olympics was misunderstood by the media. At the time the media entirely missed the point of the protest, because Tommie Jones is quoted as saying what they did was a protest for all people, not just African-Americans. Instead, the media insisted on calling what they did a “Black Power” salute.

Personally, I’m very glad that he had the courage to stand up (or in this case sit down) for what he believes. Racism is alive and well in the United States in 2016, something that Colin Kaepernick is courageous enough to point out while the rest of Americans are still in a state of denial. Maybe what he did will finally start the “conversation about race relations” that so many politicians, including President Obama, have been talking about for years but doing very little to start it.

A Very Good Question Indeed!

Source: Why has only Hillary Clinton turned over all her emails?

A Very Good Question Indeed!

Hillary ClintonThe author of this article in Mother Jones asks an excellent, pertinent question about the issue of Hillary Clinton’s emails and why she seems to be singled out when others have also been guilty of misusing their email servers. It just goes to show that there is a huge level of hypocrisy in this entire presidential election.

For that matter, why isn’t Donald Trump or Trey Gowdy being asked to release their emails? After all, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. The last two people who I mentioned, Trump and Gowdy, have also been alleged to have done something unethical and maybe even illegal about their use of emails.

For example, what would the emails of Condoleezza Rice tell us? Probably something that we already know; the war in Iraq was illegal and unnecessary. These emails would probably also show us to what extent she was willing to cover George Bush‘s ass. However, since most of us know that Dick Cheney was the “power behind the throne,” Condoleezza Rice’s emails would probably expose Vice President Cheney to being a bigger war criminal than most of us already know he is.

Colin Powell’s emails would probably show us the same thing, even though it’s well-known that Secretary Powell was opposed to the war. However, he didn’t say very much at the time when the invasion of Iraq was underway. He had no problem putting himself in the position of being a day late and a dollar short when it comes to ethics.

Also, Trey Gowdy stands accused of using his official email server illegally to run his last election campaign; something that is illegal. His official email server was only supposed to be used to conduct official business in his capacity as a member of the House of Representatives. It is unethical for him to use it as a campaign tool. He is the chair of the House committee that was conducting a witch hunt against Hillary Clinton that costs US taxpayers millions of dollars. Why isn’t he being asked to surrender his emails? I guess it’s okay for people who live in glass houses to throw stones at others.

It has also alleged that Donald Trump is guilty of shredding emails that were evidence in one of his bankruptcy hearings. The last time I checked, the that was called tampering with evidence, which is a crime. Of course, most of us already know that Trump is nothing less than a criminal.

The reason why Hillary Clinton seems to be being singled out appalls me, but it doesn’t surprise me one bit; given the obscene amount of bullshit that has been thrown around during this presidential election. Even though I’m not a huge fan of Hillary Clinton, I do plan on voting for her, if for no other reason than to deny Donald Trump the White House. I greatly resent Hillary Clinton being singled out for unequal treatment, especially since her alleging abuse of her official email server has been shown to be nothing more than campaign propaganda. The Republicans insist on clinging to because they have nothing else going for them, especially with a candidate who is a total lowlife like Donald Trump.

I think that the emails of the people I mentioned should be released out of fairness to Hillary Clinton.

Racists Exposed By Refusing to Tip Waitress

Racists Exposed By Refusing to Tip Waitress

A couple of racists exposed themselves by refusing to tip a waitress of Hispanic roots. Then they actually had the gall to get angry when the young girls grandfather posted the check on Facebook, which the racist couple were stupid enough to sign. They act as though this young woman’s grandfather didn’t have the right to get angry when his granddaughter was not only stiffed on her tip, but had to endure have a very hateful message “we only tip citizens” written on the receipt. Oh, where do these people come from?

It turns out that this young woman was born and raised in the United States and her family heritage goes back three generations. It’s obvious that these two racists had no problem having their identity known by signing the check, which is a step above most racists who mostly wish to remain anonymous because they are cowards. After all, there is a reason members of the KKK wear masks and white robes.

The owner of the diner where the young woman works is to be credited because he stood up for his employee with the couple came back to cause more problems and to express their anger and this young woman’s grandfather for posting a photo of the signed check to Facebook. He 86’d the couple from his wet restaurant and said that if they ever came back he would have them arrested for trespassing.

However, this young woman is receiving an outpouring of support from a lot of people, which says something about how people basically feel that racists such as this are to be condemned, not condoned. Even though this story made me very angry when I first read it, in some ways it reinforces my belief that a lot of people are actually very good people.

I’m just glad to see racists exposed at every turn. They deserve it, and much more.
